    Heck, do it for yourself. That's the part that matters.

    Remember, the movement you speak of is not the same throughout. Bad apples is bad apples...

    You're going to need WAY more retention than that. What if some nutcase come up and tries to dis-bat you? You might be targeted for that fine piece of craftsmanship, and you need to make sure they can't just snatch it up. Call SERPA and see what they can do. And be very careful about somebody seeing you and taking the first swing. The guy with the bat get's taken out first every time.

    And don't go flaunting it like a peacock. That's just uncalled for. And whatever you do, don't get a cheap holster that lets it bounce off your butt when you walk. You'll look like a rank amateur and and get the bat guys and the non bat guys on your case.

    Forgive this forum newbie for playing devil's advocate, but if you have the choice of carrying concealed or openly, why would you choose open? Why advertise the fact, or put yourself through the social stress, or make yourself look like a police officer?

    As an alternative, why not OC a hatchet? You can get them with belt scabbards...

    So going old school huh? Everybody knows that while ash was great back in the day you could only swing wood it is obsolete. The guy at the local lumber yard says you are fool to swing anything but maple. He says a line drive from a maple bat will rip the pocket clean out of an infielders glove. All Bat-ical magazines are now saying that REAL players that are exempt from the MLB regulation are swinging alloy or composite. Yeah.... wood bats are the Colt Peacemaker of sporting goods.


    Other than George Brett do we know of any cases with a prosecutor (or umpire) making an issue of how much pine tar you use?

    No training needed with a hatchet. You simply hack away until they stop moving, makes no difference if you hit with the sharp edge or the blunt edge, beat them into submission.

    Or if you subscribe to the movie method, you can cleave limbs or heads in a single blow, but that probably takes a bit of training that the department won't pay for.


    Oh and the wood bats, well they are like 1911's, no matter what comes along, they will always be the standard by which things are measured.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Ray, that question has been asked from both sides of that fence... Do what is comfortable for you.. Do it well. Be prepared in your own mind, get training... and live within your means (of carry and otherwise).

    It could be worse!

    We recently got a new neighbor. His preferred carry weapon on his daily walks is a very stylish, old school croquet mallet! I kinda like his rebellious attitude! Another carries an umbrella. I don't think that really has the cool factor.
